DATA MODUL showcases high-tech embedded modules

Based on the current Embedded product strategy, COM Express products in the low power and high end divisions at DATA MODUL are undergoing large-scale expansion.  All the new Intel processor platforms (following the Intel IOTG roadmap) are implemented based on the COM Express module standard. These reference modules can immediately be used serially on baseboards or as building blocks for customized single board computers.

Two additional building block baseboard modules or customized ODM designs will be available just in time for electronica: COM Express compact modules with cutting-edge Intel Pentium/Celeron and Atom processors (codename Braswell) for low power applications and the Com Express Basic module with Intel Core i3/i5/i7 and Xeon E3 6th generation processors (codename Skylake) for the high performance division.

Among other things, this controller provides the defined feature set specified by COM Express. Additional useful features are also realized, turning this module into an Embedded module:

The standard range of features for all products include IO-MUX for the interfaces, multistage watchdog, UART, GPIO, RTM, board information, I²C bus, SPI and PWM, special features like CAN controllers can also be integrated without additional hardware costs. EAPI drives for Windows and Linux are available for all these functions, the entire portfolio and for future extensions. This allows for fast and efficient integration of the latest processor technology into individual OEM client applications.

DATA MODUL has extended its current COM Express product portfolio with the eDM-COMC-BS6 with cutting-edge Intel Pentium/Celeron/Atom processors for low power applications.

These robust COM Express modules consume an average of only about 4 to 7 watts and provide a more balanced and greater overall performance in graphics. The integrated Intel 8th generation graphic provides a graphics performance which is twice as high (in comparison to the previous platform). In addition, three independent 2x DP 1.1 or 2x HDMI 1.4b and 1x eDP 1.4 or Dual Channel LVDS displays are supported. DirectX11.1 and OpenGL 4.2 ensure exquisite display quality up to 4k resolution (3840 x 2160 @30 Hz) with advanced 3D features. The integrated video engine decodes H.265/HEVC compressed videos smoothly at maximum CPU discharge and encodes two 1080p H.264 video streams with 60 Hz in real-time. Cameras can optionally be directly connected via MIPI-CSI interface. The eDM-COMC-BS6 has a COM Express type 6 pinout with 3 x PCI Express Gen 2.0 (5GT/s) lanes, 1x Gigabit Ethernet, 2x SATA 3.0, 4x USB 3.0, 8x USB 2.0, LPC and I²C bus, GPIOs, 2 x UART (COM1/2), HD audio. Additionally, either a TPM 1.2 or TPM 2.0 compliant chip can be fitted for security-relevant applications. 

In the high performance division, DATA MODUL presents the eDM-COMB-SL6 with integrated Intel Iris Pro technology. The upper level of the eDM-COMB-SL6 is fitted with the latest 14nm Quad-Core Intel Core i7 and Xeon processors and has a 8 MB L2 cache with a TDP of 25-45 watts. The middle level is equipped with Quad Core Intel Core i5 and Dual Core Intel Core i3 offering a 6 MB and 3 MB L2 cache with a TDP of 25-45 watts. Dual Core Intel Celeron CPUs with a 2 MB L2 cache and a TDP of 25-35 watts are also available on the lower level.

Depending on processor choice, the integrated graphic offers the latest Intel Gen 9 HD graphics generation from GT1 up to GT4. DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.3, OpenCL 2.0, as well as hardware MPEG-2 decoding, WMV9 (VC-1), H.264 (AVC) and Blu-ray with 40 MBit/s ensure fluid HD video reproduction. Up to three independent displays with a 4k@60Hz resolution can be controlled at the same time, even when the display content is different. 3 x DP++/HDMI/DVI and 1 x VGA (optional) and 1 x Dual Channel 24 bit LVDS are available as interfaces.
